A few days ago, someone asked if there was a centralized calendar of student affairs conferences and events.Â To the best of my knowledge, there isn’t.Â So I’ve created one:
This has all of the national and regional events currently listed on the websites of the following organizations:
I did not include state-level events or Webinars.Â I think you could make a good argument for including them; if you’re interested in making that argument then you’re more than welcome to add those events!Â I’m also sure that there are many organizations and events missing from this calendar.Â If you notice something, please let me know.
I don’t want to maintain this calendar.Â I don’t think it should be one person’s job.Â If I could immediately and automatically give everyone the ability to edit this calendar, I would do so.Â But I can only give specific people permission to edit.Â So if you are interested in helping to maintain this calendar, please contact me.
(A side note: It would be nice if we didn’t have to create and maintain this calendar by hand.Â Most of the organizations already included in this calendar only had an HTML/text calendar on their website.Â A few had RSS feeds for their calendar.Â And only one had a more helpful calendar – a Google calendar – but it is embarrassingly out of date.Â Once again, we can do much better than this.Â And we can do it cheaply and easily. How wonderful it would be if these organizations all had up-to-date calendars to which we could subscribe, automatically updating our own calendars!)
